Soldier: Those lights are blinking out of sequence.
Murdock: Make them blink in sequence.
A couple of weeks ago we tried building a blinking light interface using 3 LED's and a push button. The aim was to introduce a greater understanding of circuits, some more complicated wiring, and to get started on some basic code. We also learnt about resistors, which are a major component of most Arduino projects and ensure that our other parts don't fry.
It was a difficult session with some people excelling at the coding and others the wiring. And everyone gained invaluable experience with one of the foundations of electronics: troubleshooting! Whilst not everyone got their interface working, it certainly laid the foundations for building the robot building we are working on now.
Welcome to Code Redlands
Code Redlands is a coding and robotics program dedicated to creating a an environment where we can explore, learn and create. With Digital Literacy a new focus for the future, we want to augment digital literacy skills by offering space, technology, and facilitators. We hope to equip the next generations of Queenslanders with STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) skills to find their own place in an increasingly digital world.
